In 2012, I moved into a little place by the lake. In addition to having amazing views of
the water, it was also an opportunity for me to create a space I had always wanted.
In my mind there was always going to be “the beach house” or “the lake house”,
and I had been shopping and collecting for it for YEARS!
(You know, when you find that little decor item on vacation, and you just HAVE to have it?
I had an entire storage room filled with that stuff.)
Getting it out was like Christmas!
I read once that good design requires restraint, and boy, did it ever!
It can be a challenge not to
G O O V E R B O A R D
with nautical, beachy tchotchkes.
Confession: I had to look up the spelling
I guess I have a thing for old windows…
